This is around 4ft long hard wood stick, covered in hand carved various faces, animals, fish, guitar, cricket bat, ball and stumps and what looks like an native american totum face.

It's quite interesting and obviously tells a story of some sort. Was told it belonged to grandads grandad so that would put it 1800's.

Is it a shelelie? Honestly have no idea only that it's been knocking about for years. Sorry phone won't let me post pic.

But what would the cricket bat, ball and stump have to do with the story? There's a gun carved on it too which would suggest hunting, rabbit. Also a violin a spade, honestly there's all sorts of things carved onto it. You notice something different each time you look at it. The handle is a dogs face or a walrus.

Oh that's excellent :D more than likely explanation as great grandad was probably an Irish navvy brought over to build the local reservoir. How very interesting. Thanks for that :D xx
